. it was the same old arguments. i mean, i'm not putting him down necessarily. but what we heard from senator rubio and boehner. let's fight over minimum wage. the evils of minimum wage. >> this is where you look at this -- and i look at this speech as a political document. you look at the minimum wage is a 65% approved item. when you look at universal pre-k. that's a 65% approval. when you look at the idea of having high schools get more skill -- teach more actic skills, this is 65% ideals. it's similar to what bill clinton would pull on republicans in the late '90s. thad say they seem liberal. >> school uniforms. >> all this stuff. and yet it's what average people around the kitchen table are thinking well, you know what? universal pre-k. i wish i could do that. i can't afford this private school and i'm not poor enough to qualify for assistance here. so if republicans find themselves where they're letting the president talk about kitchen table issues and have that conversation on his own and they're not having it. so the minimum wage is a classic thing. they're going to end up looking like they'

a strong spops fre from republicans. marco rubio said the president has an obsession to raising taxes. >> instead, we should grow our economy to create new taxpayers, not new taxes. so our government can afford to help those who truly cannot help themselves. >> rubio was followed up by another conservative voice, rand paul, who offered the tea party response. while he also focused on the economy, he blamed both parties for failing voters. >> washington act in a way your family never could. they spend money they don't have. they borrow from future generationsment then they blame each other for never fixing the problem. tonight i urge you to demand a new course. demand washington change their ways or be sent home. >>> paul and rubio also ride to characterize the president as a big government man at a time when smaller government is needed. >> gabrielle giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. >> the night turned emotional when president turned to reducing gun violence. he named some of the biggest mass shootings in the past
rubio would have said, you want to know what the state of the union is? let me tell you what the state of the union is. average income of americans has dropped 5%. not since barack obama became president of the united states, but since the recession ended. our economy's in transition. more americans are being left behind. senior citizens aren't going to be assured of these entitlement programs for long. we're $6 trillion deeper in debt today than we were when barack obama became president. barack obama's allowed the national debt to go up by 60% himself since he was president. 4 million more americans are out of work today than were working when barack obama became president. we've got the weakest recovery in over 70 years with barack obama as president of the united states. it is time to think big. it is time to go long. it is time to come together. why couldn't anybody in washington say that last night? >> and there was a lack of urgency to it. there was a sense that -- it was a little bit -- so much depends on what the baseline is. and the president was almost saying things are impr
president obama's handling of the economy. up and coming senator marco rubio spoke on behalf of the parties saying the president has an obsession with raising taxes. >> in order to balance our budget, it doesn't have to be benefit cuts and raising taxes. instead, we should grow our economy. create new taxpayers, not new taxes. so our government can help those who truly cannot help themselves. >> rubio also called on the president to adopt the republican plan for medicare reform and renewed a call for spending cuts. >>> the country considering putting a warning label on one. most popular drinks in the world. >>> plus, the pope's first appearance since his major announcement. >>> you want to stay with us all day for the forecast when rain and snow are expected time for weather and traffic on the 1s. here's your temperature and precipitation timeline for the day. mid-40s by noontime and cloudy between now and then. light rain in the afternoon. changing to some wet snow after sunset up until midnight. less than an inch in the light blue areas. off north and west a little more. back with the sev
a party. marco rubio will give the response in spanish and english. this is just -- it started with karl rove, the architect, that little nerd -- if i see him one more time on tv -- is the architect of the destruction of the gop. he gave us obama. the idea of reaching out and becoming democrats. what democrats aren't are people who believe in a group identity and hyphenated americanism. we conservatives believe in assimilation. that's why he's not going to give a response in german or italian. we will hear all the lofty platitudes and trite things from obama about a nation of immigrants. it was a somewhat perverse people being melted down by the fires of assimilation and being made similar -- it was a people meltedrdiverse down by the fires of assimilation. nobody would know marco rubio. he looks like the beaver. i will not follow him because he is a trendy minority. having to reach out to people, that is racial extortion. host: have you looked at when he believes in and 20 plans to talk about tonight? caller: i know all about his immigration platform. the fact that we have to have some

's response given in both spanish and english by florida senator marko rubio, who accused the president of hurting the middle class with deficit spending and tax hikes. >> the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hardworking middle class taxpayers, that's an old idea that's failed every time it's been tried. >> reporter: and the president will now go on the road to promote this agenda that he outlined. his first stop will be north carolina later today. rob and diana? >> and marci, another big topic of discussion in the speech last night was immigration reform. that seemed to be a rare moment of true bipartisanship last night in the speech. >> reporter: that's true. he got a very big applause when he said, send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months and i will sign it right away. the president put out a tweet with that quote and it got retweeted a bunch of times. that's a big deal to get those retweets. >> also, we heard from marko rubio there, but he wasn't the only senator to offer a response to that state of the union ton
and democrats work together. so with your gang of eight, with senator rubio being a part of the hispanic caucus and hispanic conference i believe we'll see immigration reform. jon: senator rubio spoke about that in his reboughtal or response to the president's state of the union. >> with his response, jon, he was successful twofold. first of all the only way we can increase prosperity and reduce poverty is through free enterprise. it is through smaller government and capitalism. so last night rubio not only talked about immigration reform he spoke from the heart dealing with solutions and bringing our nation back together. jon: and well, did he, which cause did he advance? i mean a lot of people were watching this speech in terms of his future prospects as a presidential contender himself but what about the overall policies of things like immigration reform? >> true leadership is speaking from the heart. he has lived it. he has worked in the middle class family. he has worked among immigrants. he is from immigrants. so he lived it and experienced it and that is true leadership where he can brin
-field advantage and he ends up looking like kenneth the page. >> i don't think rubio will look like that or sound like that. i think he will obviously, it will be a play on immigration. it will be hopefully an economic response to the president. to your point, joe, the president has said, we've got to do something about entitlements. the question is what? what are you willing to put on the table? is he going to lay out a specific or some direction towards a specific policy. that's what republicans will look for. more importantly to your question, they have an opportunity to frame this economic argument. you still have 21 million americans unemployed. the rate is still up. you can frame that argument and say to the president, take the laundry list you laid out tonight, give us the bill and we will wait for it in the house and embrace it and work with you and the senate democrats if that's what you want. give us the bill. >> i think the whole speech is going to be in spanish so we won't know what he says. >> i can go to sleep much much earlier and wait for the translation. >> talk about a no win si
. senator rubio and others who say that the proposals on the table wouldn't have changed what happened in newtown are wrong. they are absolutely wrong. if that young man didn't have 30 round ammunition magazines, there would be little boys and girls alive. i'm not the only one that believes that. the families of the kids believe that as well. the fact is that these have become weapons o of mass destruction. they give a false sense of courage to these mass murders who might not walk into these schools and religious institutions and movie theaters if they didn't have the fault weapon in the first place. and without those clips if they walk in, they wouldn't do as much damage. these people who say that these changes and laws wouldn't have made a difference in newtown, they don't know the facts. >> do dwrou think something big and bold can be done or something small like universal background checks? >> i think it's okay to move incrementally. if we started with background checks and moved to other more serious issues like bans on high-capacity magazines, that's okay too. there's a moment i
. host: what did you think about senator rubio's speech? you are a republican. we heard from a prior floridian she was not a fan. what did you think of the content? caller: i thought he was trying to be very honest with the people and trying to tell them basically how he felt, that it really was going to be for the middle class people and how it was going to effect all the middle class people. host: independent line, new york. caller: how are you? host: good, thanks. we heard about immigration. what did you make of the immigration comments? caller: i think that it is about time. as far as i know, he has pretty much sealed the border, which is what the republicans are hinging everything else on. that has been done. i do not see how much more can be done on that. i think that we need a path to citizenship. i think there needs to be some sort of clear way to come in and work and get green cards and everything else. it is not. we are a sophisticated country in 2013 and we cannot figure it out. it is ridiculous. what i found just amazing was it seemed like senator rubio was, again, as rep
state of the union address that was a response to from senator marco rubio, response very interesting, but it's what he did during the response that has a lot of people talking this morning. lots to get to, as well. >> first there is another major developing story going on right now. dramatic developments overnight in the manhunt for christopher dorner, police now saying they have found charred remains in that burned out cabin after a shoot-out in that cabin near big bear lake, california. dorner allegedly shot two more officers, killing one of them before barricading himself in the woods. his ten day reign of terrorizing people apparently ending when a s.w.a.t. team detonated a smoke device inside that cabin and set it on fire. we still do not have positive confirmation of dorner's death even though they are now saying they have found charred remains. cops spent nearly a week franticly searching big bear. how they finally cornered the suspect. >> reporter: a hail of bullets, police radio captured the moment. a cabin burning to the ground. fugitive ex-cop christopher dorner believed i
. >>> the gop is lashing out against a white house immigration plan leaked over the weekend. senator marco rubio called it "half baked and siresly flawed." the white house says it's a backup plan in case efforts are stumbled. >> reporter: immigration is one of the issues that sparks democrats and republicans. while eight senators are finishing a bipartisan bill, "usa today" reveals the white house has been working on a backup plan if the current efforts fall apart. >> if those do not work out, then we'll have an option this will be ready to put out there. >> reporter: president obama's chief of staff says the white house proposal would bolster border security and include a path to citizenship for this nation's 11 million undocumented immigrant. republicans say any plan with the president's name on it is bound to fail. >> of course it will. and that's why we are working together, republicans and democrats. by the way, he's had no communications with republicans on the issue, unlike the previous four presidents that i've dealt with. >> reporter: senator john mccain is one of the so-called gang of
. >> carl cameron has specifics. >> marco rubio's response to the president "state of the union" address was simple and aggressive. >> this opportunity to make it to the middle class isn't bestowed on us from washington. comes from a vibrant free economy that people risk their own money to open a business. if they succeed they hire more people. >> of cuban descent and key author of the bipartisan reform proposal, rubio is emerging as a top 2016 presidential contender to appeal to minorities in the middle class. the favorite attack is that those of white house don't agree with him don't care about the immigrants. i live in the neighborhood i grew up in. what you propose will hurt the middle class families. i don't oppose your plans because i want to protect the rich, i want to protect my neighbors. >> the president wanted to raise minimum wage but rubio warned it wouldn't grow jobs and income. >> we all want that. is the minimum wage the best way to do it? history said the answer is absolutely not. >> employers cut jobs when forced to raise wages. >> critics care less about the message th
, the budget and the deficit. here's what both he and republican marco rubio said last night. >> deficit reduction alone is not an economic plan. a growing economy that creates good, middle class jobs. that must be the north star that guides our efforts. >> the choice doesn't have to be higher taxes or dramatic benefit cuts for those in need. instead, we should grow our economy to create new taxpayers, not new taxes. >> higher taxes were not going forth this time around, republicans said, after the president's speech. they thought it was short on specifics and pushed too much big government. today, as i noted, the president heads to north carolina and then atlanta and then chicago, all between now and friday to try to get public support for the ideas he laid out here last night. eun? >> tracie potts, live on capitol hill for us. thank you. a second conservative voice also responded to the annual address. senator rand paul spoke on behalf of the tea party. while he criticized the president's handling of the economy, he also blamed both parties for failing voters. >> washington acts in a w

it has not changed. we're about 30 seconds away from marco rubio who is giving the official republican response to the state-of-the-union address. it is probably no coincidence that the first ever time we had an official response to the state of the union from a party out of hour, in 1966, first time it was televised in prime time speech. the losing parties don't necessarily want to give the party that time on their own. marco rubio will rebut. >> i am marco rubio. let me begin by congratulating president obama on the start of his second term. tonight, i have the honor of responding to the state-of-the-union address on behalf of my fellow republicans. and i'm especially honored to be addressing our brave men and women serving in the armed forces. you may be thousands of miles away, you are always in our prayers. for much of human history, most people were trapped in stagnant societies where a tiny minority always stayed on top and nobody else even had a chance. but america is exceptional, because we believe that every life at every stage is precious. and that every one everywhere has a
